Kimber Riddle is featured in the new play, Kidnap Road, by Catherine Filloux. Kimber took time out from rehearsals to answer our 6 Questions. Kidnap Road plays La MaMa's First Floor Theatre from April 27 - May 14, 2017.
1. Who do you play in Kidnap Road?
I play the Woman (Ingrid Betancourt)
2. Did you do any research on the Ingrid Betancourt kidnapping or other research for this production?
Yes I did quite a bit of research on the kidnapping and the captivity as well as what happened before the kidnapping and after the rescue.
3. What is the most challenging part of this play?
The most challenging part of this play for me is preparing for this journey. Putting it together and organizing it in my head.
4. Who inspires you?
Ingrid inspires me. Even though she is a controversial figure that causes opinions and feelings to bubble, I find her very inspiring in preparation to play her. For all that she survived she is still going strong and working to be a better human.
5. What is the most challenging part of this play?
This is a dream role. Any female role that is complicated that inspires the challenge to do my best work.
6. What does working at La MaMa mean to you?
This will be my second time working at La Mama. It's exciting. Hopefully there will be a third time....
